that obama -- that romney needed going into this, you know, with just a couple weeks away? >> it's very much the narrative he needed, because his campaign was about to be blown away. president obama generally has been running a much better campaign than mitt romney has, but in the last week or so, the mitt romney campaign i think is getting its act together. he had a very, very good debate, obviously. he was more personal on the stump, he was in florida the last few days, he was willing to talk in an emotionally connective way. he gave a foreign policy speech today that was -- had a lot of vagueness in it but was by far and way the best foreign policy speech in my judgment he's made, the most comprehensive on the middle east. he's finding his voice, finding solidity but the polls are really hard to understand right now. not only this pew poll but we had one of the strangest days in polling in gallup i have ever seen. this morning they put out a tracking poll that said the race was tied. this afternoon they put out a second tracking poll saying obama had a five point lead. what can you make o
changed. >> ari, before last week, president obama was showing strong signs of improvement on the economy, closing the gap in most polls. but i want to show you a number. the pew poll shows that 54% of registered voters agree with the phrase doubt that obama knows how to turn the economy around. what do you make of that? >> that's been consistent, and it's been mitt romney's hope. if this is an election about the state of the economy and whether the president is partially or enough to blame for the bad economy, he's going to lose. that's why you see the president has been launching an attack against bain and other things that he was doing. so that's been the weakness and the numbers, too, that i'm looking for on the inside the polls are mitt romney's attributes and his ratings among independents because forget whether the polls are skewed for ds or rs, as long as mitt romney keeps winning independents, chances are mitt romney's going to win. in this pew poll, he won independents today, having nothing to do with whether it's skewed one party or the other. that's something to keep your eye
's incredible. host: thanks for the call. another early voter. guest: michelle obama was in the state last week in cincinnati on the first-ever early voting with 6800 supporters. she said i want you all to follow the staff across the street to the hamilton county board of elections office and vote now. this is critical for both sides to try to get as many of these votes as possible. on senate bill 5, 61% of ohioans, that means republicans and independents -- excuse me, democrats and independents voted to repeal senate bill 5. 68% of ohioans voted to repeal obamacare. independents are critical. they judged things as best they can. if they want to send a message, they will. but in the same election cycle they are sending a message to president obama and federal health care while also telling john kasich, the republican, but he went too far on collective bargaining. guest: bush won in 2004. obama won with 52% at. no strategist will tell you this will be anything more than 51% or 52%, so ohioans did not believe that recent poll. host: what was wrong? guest: when you poll before independence in ohio

, martin, that president obama has woven the hoover dam into some of his speeches in the past several weeks and months to sort of talk about american exceptionalism. he said he had never seen it and he wanted to take this chance to do it. yesterday he actually made a stop, took a break from debate prep to take a stop at one of his campaign headquarters here. again gave him the chance to take a break and shake a few hands and talk to folks in this key swing state. >> kristin, we've learned that the president will get the first question tomorrow night, but do you have any other details about how the debate has been structured, how things are going to proceed? >>. >> reporter: we do have a few more details, martin. we know there are going to be six 15-minute segments. the segments will include three on the economy, one on health care, one on governing, one on the role of government, and here is how it's going to work. moderator jim lehrer will start each segment off by asking a question. he will give each candidate two minutes to answer the question, and then they'll use the remainder of the t
the romney campaign has been running against obama. he rere pepeated the lie to cnn last week. there was a moment back in may when it became a scandal that a pro-mitt romney super pac had even been pitched the idea of bringing jeremiah wright back as an attack on president obama. that ad campaign was never picked up by the pro-romney super pac or the romney campaign itself. it was a scandal they had even been asked to pick up something that racially charged. but a few months later, the campaign picked up the welfare nonsense campaigning in a way that's divorced from the facts but that's loaded with enough sub text to knock you over in a still wind. and they picked up newt gingrich surrogate in his food stamps attack. no and now fox news and the pro-mitt romney drudge report just are going full bore on the jeremiah wright stuff, as o of right now. in 2008 the john mccain had a choice about whether or not they should campaign on really ove overtly racial appeals. things like the jeremiah wright attack. they chose not to in 2008. if the romney campaign is going to keep going ther
and if they would have known that, they never would have elected him. the efforts to make president obama's race sound like new news and to make it sound shocking are right now ramping up aggressively. last week, for example, here was newt gingrich going all out with it. if you want to make a racial reference bingo card from the '70s, the terms are basketball, performer, the word rhythm, and you'll want a special box for references to the president as sleepy or lazy. >> i'm assuming that some rhythm to barack obama that the rest of us don't understand. whether he needs large amounts of rest, whether he needs to go play basketball for awhile. i don't watch espn. i don't know what his rhythms are, but this is a guy who is a brilliant performer who may well get reelected at the present date. and who frankly happens to be a partial part-time president. he really is like e the substitute referees in the sense that he's not a real president. he doesn't do things presidents do. he doesn't worry about things presidents do. but he has the white house. he has enormous power. he'll go down in history as pr
their debate performances over the past couple of weeks. president obama said that preparing for the debate was quote a drag. in the meantime, mitt romney says it's not about who wins or loses, it's about who -- well, he didn't say anything about a game. but he said, we have serious issues at play here. both men have been practicing for the debate. joining me now, the political professor, jason johnson and republican strategist thank you so much. for some reason i'm a little off kilter now, but i'm fine. jason, you know, i'm just wondering about this pennsylvania ruling. a judge ruled you don't have to show your i.d. before you vote in pennsylvania. of course, that's on appeal. but on the day of the election, you won't have to show your voter i.d. will that make a difference for democrats, let's say? >> that's going to be a huge difference for democrats. you had the republican head of the state senate saying that voter i.d. was going to hand pennsylvania to mitt romney. well, now the state is at play. so mitt romney has to compete fairly, there's not going to be any voter i.d. laws disenfra
interesting story lines today and for the next two weeks is how does the obama campaign react to what happened last night in. >> oh, absolutely. >> we're going to find out. because maybe we're missing something. i can't figure it out. >> listen, i think they'll even admit, mika, that mitt romney had a great night, but they're going to go in. we're talking style here. >> i know. >> because that's what moves debates. they're going to pick apart everything mitt romney said. we're going to see it on 30-second ads. >> and all their inconsistencies. a lot of them. >> there's a lot to pick at now because there's much more specificity on the table, and some of the things romney said last night are vulnerable to attack in new ways, new and effective ways for the president. >> too bad he wasn't attacked last night. joe klein, thank you very much. >> thank you, joe. >>> ahead, chuck todd will join us from the debate site in denver. coming up, senior adviser to the obama campaign, david axelrod. and in a few minutes, senior adviser to the romney campaign, ed gillespie. keep it right here on "morning joe."
.m. example. how many times did obama miss in the debate this week to pin romney down on the specific question of okay, you want to cut taxes across the board, you want to be deficit neutral and you have a broad promise to close loopholes and deductions. let's spell ought out what the deductions are. let's specify mitt romney which ones you say you'll go after and which ones you'll protect. biden is really -- i think you're right. ryan we see in this campaign, interviews he had something new. follow-up questions. >> when we come back, we're going to talk more about this. we know there's a problem of biden bromance. i want to know whether or not paul ryan is willing to go hard in for mitt romney. i'm going to gargle during the break. or get the yard ready for cool an energy weather?n to size? the answer? a lot less. the great american fix-up is going on now... ...with new projects every week and big savings every day. so you can do what needs to be done. today. more saving. more doing. that's the power of the home depot. right now, owens corning ecotouch attik insulation is only $11.87 a roll.
of the polling we're seeing. national polls, it seems as if the dip that romney experienced last week is gone. that's the good news for you guys. the bad news is, president obama's number hasn't moved. so the bounce that he got into the 49, 50% range has held where it's governor romney's number that is fluid. are you one of those that believe that 49, 50% is the winning range? so that your next job, you're in the race, then the next job is you have to figure out how to peel votes away. >> you look at this in the context of where we are. there's five-plus weeks. there's a lot that can happen in five weeks. there's three presidential debates. and there's probably two or three hundred million ads to be dumped on the public. things change in presidential campaigns quite actively in september and early october. it's now that you start looking at serious numbers. the carter/reagan race didn't change until the last few weeks. there's a close parallel between this and carter/reagan. >> let me ask you about new hampshire's poll. i'm sure you didn't miss it. 15-point deficit for mitt romney. i'm guessi
the next four years. it's very striking in the obama team announcement his campaign the last five weeks which is what, the last four years something like that. >> if you elect obama the next four years than the last four years. that's true and for reelecting obama but it's not an inspiring forward-looking slogan about what mitt romney will do. obama has cast his lot and it's hard to blame the guy that wants to get pretty elected -- reelected with a approach to the democratic and independent constituencies to try to scare them about romney is just bush and all that. i don't think we are going to get the training he would like. i love little less pessimistic that means they can't govern effectively. i do think reality matters as we have been saying. we are going to hit a cliff in all kind of ways. but it is a real cliff in 2013 in the sense that you cannot sustain these obviously for too long they can't keep printing money and expect the world to take it or why treasury forever. the economy is slow and may be going into another dip. the foreign policy challenges. i think the next presiden
obama votes to concentrate on the swing voters and the undecideds closer to election day. >> yeah. earlier in the week, the pennsylvania judge ruling that voter i.d. rules, they can't be imment impleme implemented. how does that affect another key state? >> people were worried the pennsylvania voter i.d. law could make the pennsylvania contest a little closer than the polls subject. right now president obama in most polls in the keystone state is up in high double digits. this could disproportion knitly affect minorities and others seen to be democratic voters, could end up hurting them, but this ruling that the pennsylvania voter i.d. law essentially will not be the law for 2012 pretty much eliminates a lot of democratic worries that that law could end up making the race closer than it currently appears in the polls. >> i want to know if you see a big difference in 24 hours, because with the debate fallout, may be blunted by the job numbers. people were talking about thursday morning, then friday morning, and getting an early indication of how the debate may have played out in th
at this time. the remaining five weeks before the election the gap between the photo id's issued and the estimated need will not be closed. some supporters say the ruling shows a clear double standard. >> obama had a rally if you had to have a photo id to go to his rally. if it is good enough for his rally why not here. >> american airlines is now blaming clamps they say were installed incorrectly for the seats popping lose during three different flights since late last week. the airline is now inspecting other airplanes that use the very same clamps. 36 have been checked so far, 4 needed to be fixed 11 more planes still need to be inspected. the clamps were installed incorrectly during maintenance work by employees and contractors. there has been speculation the problems may have been the result of sabotage related to a bunch of ongoing labor disputes between the company and the union. but the airline ruling that one out. >>> another dead end in the search for jimmy hoffa's remains. michigan police say they didn't find human remains under a shed in roseville. police took soil sa
the first presidential debate. mitt romney is already here. president obama will touch down this hour. >> i'm crystal ball. vice president joe biden doesn't debate until next week, but
with a little bit, as his position has been changing just in the past couple of weeks. on medicare, the republicans had been ahead or even even with the democrats not long ago. but today president obama leads on medicare by 12 points. leads on medicare by even more than he's ahead on health care in general. it's also interesting that the president's middle east numbers, specifically, is ten points higher than his advantage over mr. romney on the broad issue of foreign policy. and then we get into some real contested ground. the president is favored on the issue of taxes, but on the generic question of who would be better trusted to handle the economy, mr. romney leads by three. on the deficit, mr. romney leads by nine. on all of these issues, that's the one on which he has the strongest trust from voters as compared with president obama. and that confidence in mr. romney on the deficit turns up not just in the nbc/"wall street journal" poll, but in a lot of national polls. even though he hasn't given a lot of details as to how he would handle the deficit as an issue. the bottom lin
for weeks and months. you're a voter, so you should be watching this stuff. >>> also the world is watching the university of denver because it's the site of tomorrow night's faceoff between president barack obama and his challenger governor mitt romney. cnn's political director mark preston could not wait. he's already there in denver. you're looking very happy to be there early and this is debate number one. you've still got a lot to go. two more for this month. talk to me a little bit about the format of how this conversation is going to take place, what the limitations are and what they can actually get accomplished. >> reporter: well, ashleigh, let's talk about the bullet points what viewers should expect to see tomorrow. six different segments during this debate, three segments focusing on the economy, which should come as no surprise, issue number one since 2008. so one presidential election ago. talking about health care which has become a big issue over the past couple of years with president obama passing what is now known as obama care and mitt romney saying he will repeal that.
the democratic whip who is here, practically every week, calling them back to order to support the agenda that president obama is putting forth. we hope you join us for medicare and what is at stake. all of our names are on the ballot, and the president's name is on the ballot. medicare is on the ballot, too. we hope you are here at 1:00 to hear our expert witnesses, and some of the witnesses are ordinary, everyday seniors, who benefit from medicare as we know it, or who would lose if we go forward with the republican proposal. let's go to work. >> and there is another proformance session set for friday. -- another pro forma session set for friday. election day is now five weeks away, and our campaign coverage continues this evening with a texas debate, taking place in dallas, ted cruz and paul sadler. we are also bringing you the watch a governor's -- the governors debates -- the on c-span2.ebate and mitt romney and president obama beginning the first of the debates at the university of denver tomorrow at 9:00. your reaction at 10:00 p.m. eastern, all of that on c-span, c-span radio, and
, it will be seen as the first step for the obama team to get its footing back. in the world we live in now, where everything is analyzed instantaneously, even before it happens, i think it is a meaningful event next week. >> it is important until the next presidential debate and then it becomes fairly irrelevant. >> it is important until it is over. >> they should have a disclaimer -- this debate is for entertainment purposes only. >> chicago is saying, thank god we have biden to pick us up after last night. [laughter] >> if first impressions are the most important and if the average american really tuned in for the first time, would that suggest that the next two presidential debates are less important? what is your opinion on how much the second and third presidential debates can matter? >> i think they are still very significant. it seems like ancient history now, but reagan's first debate against mondale did not go well and he turned it around in the second debate. what everybody wanted to happen, in terms of the voters, they wanted to reelect reagan because things were going well. they breat
of what we are used to wear we have a nominee, we are up in it for a few weeks. since then, the super pak sets and in a huge wave is sumner. when romney wins, he does not have the money he needs to compete with obama. he relied heavily on super pacs to do is advertising. this is not technically coordinated advertising. trevor can get into the realities there. it had some obvious positive affect inholding parity with the president as he issued a blistering attack against romney this summer. it has shown to have clear weaknesses. both campaigns will tell you this. the super pac did not follow a simple narrative might be obama advertising did. the obama campaign built a story line starting in april that tried to portray mitt romney as a certain type of person and then they presented it as the months went on new evidence. there is the offshore tax havens, etc., and they built this story line in a swing state. the super pacs operating independently were not able to build that. you have situations in which two different super pacs would have conflicting add in the same market supporting mitt ro
suggesting the obama administration had something to do with cooking the numbers because they were so favorable. as you know, the reaction to the president to debate that happened this week has been more positive for raleigh and a little more negative for the president -- romney and a little more negative for the president. is it possible? it seems so ironic and well timed at the unemployment rate has dropped so favorably for the present one month before election day. is there any w the bureau of labor statistics could have tweaked the numbers? we had labor secretary hilda solis on cnbc rejecting this. she says, i have the highest respect for the people who work at the bureau of labor statistics. this is ludicrous, the charges that are coming about the numbers being manipulated. there is no serious economists who would take these charges seriously. caller: good morning. i kept hearing in the media that regardless of who is president, 20 million jobs would be created over the next 10 years. i took time this morning to look it up. it also states that construction will not catch up in th
